If you’re looking for a lovely lake in central Italy, Lake Trasimeno is probably your best bet. The largest lake on the Italian peninsula south of the River Po, Lake Trasimeno is tranquil, pretty, and right on the border of Umbria and Tuscany, just a half-hour’s drive from Cortona. It also happens to be pretty historic: In the Battle of Lake Trasimene of 217 B.C., Hannibal defeated the Romans with one of the biggest, most successful military ambushes in history.
